April 21, 2020 The Kitsap Great Give!

posted in: Events | 0

On April 21,2020, from midnight to 11:59pm, Kitsap County will have a chance to once again make history when we come together as a community to help members of our community that need it most. The Great Give! The Kitsap Great Give is a 24-hour, online giving event organized by the Kitsap Community Foundation and our Presenting Partner, the United Way of Kitsap County, for the benefit of the greater Kitsap area.

Now more than ever Pony Up Rescue for Equines needs your support! Thanks to the support of caring donors like you, we are able to provide a safe haven for horses in need and to provide programs for our community which will help horses who may be at risk. As a charitable organization, we are deeply committed to serving the greater good and thanks to donors like you, we are making a profound difference in the lives of Northwest area horses. The Kitsap Great Give is one of our biggest fundraising events of the year. For every donation received during this event for Pony Up Rescue for Equines, a little extra is given by the Great Give Pool!

Pony Up Rescue for Equines has been supporting horses in need and at risk for ten years as a 501C3 Horse Rescue (right here in Kitsap County!). We take horses into our facility who have found themselves in need due to neglect, starvation, abandonment or as wards of the court due to law enforcement seizure. Our mission is to rescue, rehab and re-home these horses through adoption. A successful rehab will include veterinary assessment/treatment, quality food, hoof trimming, supplements and a training assessment before a horse is offered for adoption. Additionally we have programs which include low cost clinics for the local horse community which are provided at our facility for dental floats, the gelding of stallions, vaccinations and wellness exams. We offer feed assistance to families who may be struggling temporarily due to job loss or a death in the family. We are proud to have been a part of Running Start programs with local youth who serve their community project with our team!
